a presumably Windows 11 ISO is leaked and reveals a new UI and a revamped start menu among other new features to discover

The next generation of Windows is on its way. A recent release from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella confirms this: I have self-hosted it for the past few months and am incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows. A statement reinforced by an additional element: Windows 10 originally thought of as an operating system as a service will be scrapped in 2025. So what does Microsoft have in store on the new page about to open? A leak gives indications of the probable name (Windows 11) and the user interface.

what might the next generation of windows look like?

The new user interface and the Start menu in the prsum Windows 11 are very similar to what we originally found in Windows 10X. Microsoft had simplified Windows for dual-screen devices before dropping this project. Visually, the biggest changes to note are along the taskbar. Microsoft has centralized the application icons there, cleaned them up, and included a new button and a new Start menu.

This updated Start menu is a simplified version of what’s out there in Windows 10, without the Live Tiles. It includes pin apps, recent files and the ability to quickly shut down or restart Windows 11 devices. It can be positioned in the lower left corner. Add to that the dark mode which is also available, the suggested Windows 11 looks more like a more polished version of Windows 10 than something radically new.

A new icon has been added to the Windows taskbar. It’s called Widgets in the operating system. It aligns with rumors that suggested Microsoft was planning to bring widgets back to Windows. These are useful for dragging and providing quick access to news, weather and other web content.

The next generation of Windows should also be equipped with modern equivalents of the cascading windows feature that has existed in the operating system for years. It is accessed through the enlargement button available on each window. This feature opens up the possibility of neatly placing windows side by side or organizing them into sections on the desktop.

Microsoft has reportedly been working on a new app store for Windows for some time and rumors suggest it will be a big change from the existing store. The firm has promised to open up greater economic opportunities for developers and creators with Windows and it will likely come in the form of a new store.

Microsoft is reportedly revamping its Windows App Store to allow developers to submit any Windows application, including browsers like Chrome or Firefox. Microsoft is also reportedly considering allowing third-party commercial platforms in apps, which would allow developers to avoid the commission that Microsoft typically charges on in-app purchase systems.

In addition, a new configuration experience is planned. Very similar to Windows 10X, it guides users of new hardware or those upgrading to the new OS through a series of Windows setup steps. This out-of-the-box experience also includes a new startup sound that then plays at each of these phases.

Microsoft also intends to improve the Xbox experience. The new Xbox app is expected to be part of the next generation of Windows, offering quick access to Xbox Game Pass games, Xbox Network social games, and the Xbox store. The Xbox Game Bar and Windows Game Mode remain the same as Windows 10 in this preview release.

What does a new generation of Windows mean for users?

The prospect of moving to a new generation of Windows raises a number of questions. Will existing Windows 10 licenses allow it to be used? Will upgrades be possible? What will the costs be? Microsoft’s policies for upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10 suggest a similar approach for the next generation of Windows.

Also, Windows 10’s consumer support cycle is short. For example, Windows 10 21H1 – the most recent version – is supported until December 2022. This represents a lifecycle of approximately 18 months and there is no longer an extended support policy for Windows large. public. When the OS is no longer supported, the user is expected to upgrade to the next version if they wish to continue to receive support and bug fixes. The latest Windows 10 update is expected to drop in 2023 at the latest. If this chance is not met, Microsoft’s need to provide support for Windows 10 beyond its scrap date could surface.

An ISO archive is available for download. What about its authenticity?

Yes, the entire operating system is available for download in addition to all images and videos visible on the web.

This is at best a preview of the next generation of the operating system in case its authenticity is proven. Typically, OS editors reserve them for a more sophisticated user audience for testing before release to the general public. A non-authentic version for its part will pose certain security problems. It is therefore a content to approach with caution.
